A large swell is expected to arrive in the Hawaiian Islands during the second half of the week. The swell is being generated by a large hurricane-force low in the western-north Pacific Ocean.

The long-lived swell will begin arriving Wednesday and persist into the weekend. Surf is expected to peak Wednesday night into Thursday along north and west shores, then gradually decline on Saturday.

Warning level surf is expected beginning on Wednesday. A High Surf Warning is issued when breaking wave action results in an especially heightened threat to life and property within the surf zone. Criteria varies according to region, and exact surf heights have not yet been projected.
